From the Richmond Police Department:
As students in Richmond head back to school on Tuesday, motorists are reminded to use extra caution on the roads.
School buses will be back on the roadways, picking up students from bus stops and ferrying them to schools across the city. Children will also be walking to school along city sidewalks.
“School safety is always a top priority,” said Lt. Darlene Duncan. “With the new school year starting, will be back in the schools and interacting with students to help facilitate a safe learning environment for everyone.”
Police ask motorists to drive safely at all times, especially in school zones, and to be aware of students at bus stops. Drivers are reminded that passing a stopped school bus with its lights flashing is a traffic violation that could result in a significant fine.
